KCS PowerPC - All that I have - Part I

Over the years I have accumulated quite a bit of info about the
KCS PowerPC Board for the Amiga 500. Mainly in an attempt to get
the board working that is in the Checkmate. It would seem that
others have had issue with the board and struggled to get it
working. Having catalogued my MS-DOS collection I came across the
special box sold no doubt when the board was released. I was in
two minds as to where to store the box. In the end I have placed
it with the 1060 collection. 

In truth the PC emulator on the Amiga was very hit and miss. One
of the main probs being the speed at which the PC moved on and
so leaving the Amiga behind. It was always easier to fire up the
PC. Just sad that the tin box couldn't have stood still long enough
to let the emulator do catchy up.

Anyway this is all I have on the subject together with the various
bits of paper that came bundled with the odd card.

MS-DOS, various disks, sealed packs of boards and manuals

The special Amiga KCS box for MS-DOS 4.0

I assume that MS-DOS came with the early card

I have five of the cards. One is in the Checkmate

Three are in sealed packets never been opened

The KCS PowerPC Board

Interestingly 1985-86

Main connector for the trapdoor slot in the A500

Neat little unit

Nothing of note on the back

Odd little clock adjustment

Pheonix Technologies

The only jumpers on the board

Not surprising to find a Philips chip on the board
